What is keratosis pilaris?
Keratosis pilaris, sometimes called “chicken skin,” is a common skin condition that causes patches of rough-feeling bumps to appear on the skin. These tiny bumps or pimples are actually dead skin cells plugging hair follicles. They sometimes appear red or brown in color.
Keratosis pilaris is commonly found on the upper arms, thighs, cheeks, or buttocks. It isn’t contagious, and these bumps don’t usually cause any discomfort or itching.
This condition is known to worsen in the winter months when the skin tends to dry out, and may also worsen during pregnancy.
There’s no cure for this harmless, genetic skin condition, but there are some ways to treat it or prevent it from getting worse. Keratosis pilaris will usually clear up naturally by the time you reach 30 years old. Keep reading to learn more.
Keratosis pilaris Also called: follicular keratosis
A condition that causes rough patches and small, acne-like bumps on the skin. This condition develops when the skin produces too much of a protein called keratin, which can block hair follicles and cause bumps to develop. The bumps are usually on the arms, thighs, cheeks, and buttocks. They're white, sometimes red, and typically don't hurt or itch.
Keratosis pilaris home remedies
If you don’t like the look of your keratosis pilaris, there are some techniques you can try to treat it at home. Though the condition can’t be cured, self-care treatments can help to minimize bumps, itching, and irritation.
Take warm baths. Taking short, warm baths can help to unclog and loosen pores. Rub your skin with a stiff brush to potentially remove bumps. It’s important to limit your time in the bath, though, as longer wash times can remove the body’s natural oils.
Exfoliate. Daily exfoliation can help improve the appearance of the skin. Dermatologists recommend gently removing dead skin cells. Try Sugie Cubes all natural body scrub Lemon or Lavender contain (AHAs) alpha hydroxy acid and can hydrate the skin while removing dead skin cells.
Avoid tight clothes. Wearing tight clothes can cause friction that can irritate the skin.
Use humidifiers. Humidifiers add moisture to the air in a room, which can maintain the moisture in your skin and prevent itchy flare-ups.
